Well, over the years, I broke some hearts of my own, but now I try my best to help the sista's out if I can by helping them peep game. Nothing against my brothers, but I'm Pro being a man as opposed to being a player. We've all got to grow up sooner or later.
So, yesterday I'm watching the news while getting ready to work and I hear that 70% of men cheat. Wow! That's a large percentage. So that means one of two things. Either men are dogs or women aren't holding up their end thereby making it easier for a man to look elsewhere. It's definitely not the former, because the finding is that a lot of women cheat too. There is no clear consensus on the number. I guess a woman's game is tighter than a man's.
Nevertheless, here's a little info for you.
Why Men Cheat
The most frequently cited reasons for infidelity among men include
more sex (the desire for a more active sex life)
sexual variety (a desire for different kinds of sex)
opportunistic sex ( taking advantage of an opportunity to have sex
without the fear of getting caught)
to satisfy sexual curiosity (about a specific female)
a feeling of entitlement (the belief that it’s a man’s prerogative to cheat)
the “thrill of the chase”
the desire to feel important or special
Why Women Cheat
The reasons most frequently cited for female infidelity include
a desire for emotional closeness and intimacy (someone caring to
confide in and bond with on an emotional level)
a desire for attention (wanting be the center of a man’s attention again)
to reaffirm her desirability (To feel validated as a woman)
to re-experience feelings of romance
a desire to feel “special”
The biggest thing that I've found to be a problem is that we all get complacent and forget to do the things that caused the other person to fall in love in the first place. If you want it to work, you have to work at it, and while that's not pretty, it is the bottom line.
